Great things:

  • WE QUALIFIED FOR STATE SEMI-FINALS. WATCH OUT RIVERVIEW HIGH SCHOOL’S FOOTBALL FIELD, WE’RE GONNA TEAR IT UP.

Good things:

  • We didn’t completely suck.
  • We didn’t make fools of ourselves.
  • We walked away with more than participation.
  • We did better than West Port and Columbia (woot)
  • We still got Distinguished Superior for Drum Major even with an assistant dm!
  • I got the most adorable Baritone shirt in existence
  • I also got a baritone bracelet and a french horn bracelet for Errca

Okay things:

  • We got 4th place in our class.
  • We got 11th place overall.

Bad things:

  • We missed finals by one place.
  • Three bands in our class beat us.
  • Drum majors didn’t get best in class.
  • The only thing we got other than participation was that dm trophy…
  • Our score was worse than last year’s HPIMBF score.
  • Our seniors will never be able to play at Hurricane Pride finals ever again.

Despite how bad I may have made us seem…we did remarkably well compared with last week. We are on our way up.

We’re going to get it.

West Port: 13 days. Santa Fe: 27 days. FBA: 34 days. State: 48 days.

Last night at the football game we were quiet volume-wise, most likely because we didn’t warm up much. The game was 2 hours away ffs.

We didn’t get a terrible speech like last time but I still think we didn’t do very well. They just didn’t want to get our spirits down.

Well, I’ll know in about eight hours how we are. I hope to return with good news.

HPIMBF: ~5 hours. West Port: 14 days. Santa Fe: 28 days. FBA: 35 days. State: 49 days.

There’s a moment you know…you’re fucked.
Not an inch more room to self-destruct.
No more moves, oh yeah…the dead-end zone.
Man, you just can’t call your soul your own.

Disappear, yeah, well, you wanna try
Wanna bundle up into some big ass lie
Long enough for them to all just quit
Long enough for you to get out of it
Yeah, you’re fucked all right, and all for spite
You can kiss your sorry ass goodbye
Totally fucked, will they mess you up?
Well, you know, they’re gonna try.

You know, sometimes, there’s that moment in the season where everyone has given up on first place? They encourage us to just not get participating only.

We go from first in our class at HPIMBF to this. We go from winning 3A at West Port to this.

Totally fucked.

HPIMBF: 2 days. West Port: 16 days. Santa Fe: 30 days. FBA: 37 days. State: 51 days.

We had a rough night.

To put it into perspective, we performed badly enough that not only was our drum major crying, but also many of the band members (myself included). It’s the only time I’ve seen a boy cry. And he’s my section brother too, so that absolutely broke me even more.

Even better, the football game itself was being fixed. I’m not even kidding. The refs looked at each other, all the way across the field, before making a call. Both of our touchdowns got called back. What the actual fuck. But who cares, really, every single time we go to that school it gets fixed. At least our drum major didn’t get spit on this time.

I’m done with people half-assing it, my section included. I’m absolutely done. I will fight to get this band to finals at HPIMBF. I will push and shove and cry and bleed. I’m done.

We’ve only got up to go now that we’ve hit rock bottom, right? It honestly cannot get any worse.

If it does…I really don’t know what else I can do…

marchingbandconfessions:

No matter how much our director or Drum Major tells us, they never get any respect at all, and it irritates me to no end. 

It seems like my band goes through the same thing somewhat. It’s disappointing.

Go Florida bands! See you guys at 2A semi-finals this year. ;)

I just…why am I crying?

Happiness, really. We did amazing tonight, for a first game. We have our opener and ballad on the field. I don’t really want to talk about that right now though. It’s just…

Tonight something happened, and it wasn’t good, and it was in my section. And my section leader, who really puts up this front all of the time, he sent us an apology on Facebook and I just can’t stop crying. I can’t reply to it now, I just can’t. It’s so…nice. It was just so nice and I didn’t expect it at all.

And no, I’m not PMSing.

I really do love my section, no matter how much shit I go through with them, they’re my brothers (and sister). I love them all so, so much.

Relevant because I always reply if someone in band talks about dying, “you can’t die, you’ll leave a hole on the field.”

I say that because I used to say that to myself sometimes last season.
